STEM Wind Turbine
50 Year 9 students undertook a team project to design, build and test a wind turbine in an exciting Science Technology Engineering and Maths day.
Smallpeice Trust STEM Day Tuesday 26th January
Our work with the Smallpeice Trust helps to link the curriculum to the wider world through demonstrating that what is being taught in the classroom has direct relevance within the world of work. Throughout the day our Year 9 students were constantly learning, improving and putting into practice skills such as mathematics, physics, budgeting, working to deadlines, project management, team working and enterprise skills.
‘I first heard about the Smallpeice Trust several years ago. Ever since I have actively promoted their residential courses and STEM days. Many of our most able and enthusiastic students have attended Smallpeice university residential courses and derived great benefits’ (www.smallpeicetrust.org.uk)
